[texts]Biogeography-based Optimization for Transmission Network Planning Problem Considering Distributed Generation Impacts
Transmission system is one of the major components in the electric power industry. A novel approach, proposed using biogeography-based optimization (BBO) for the solution to Transmission-expansion planning (TEP) long range problem, employs a constrained BBO algorithm where network stability constraints as lower and upper limits of bus voltage magnitudes and swing angles are included, as well as the AC load flow equations...

The disturbance incidences are common events in the flight networks in many countries. On the other hand, the survival of busy airlines in this strict and competitive business is crucial and tough. Therefore solving flight perturbation scheduling problem, in order to provide an optimized schedule in low computational time, is very important. This problem and its related literature have not yet been investigated seriously in Iran...

[texts]An Analysis of Nondestructive Evaluation Techniques for Polymer Matrix Composite Sandwich Materials - Cosgriff, Laura M.
Structural sandwich materials composed of triaxially braided polymer matrix composite material face sheets sandwiching a foam core are being utilized for applications including aerospace components and recreational equipment. Since full scale components are being made from these sandwich materials, it is necessary to develop proper inspection practices for their manufacture and in-field use. Specifically, nondestructive evaluation (NDE) techniques need to be investigated for analysis of componen...

[texts]A Simple Derivation of the Equations of Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity - Patrick Bruskiewich
The implications of the two simple postulates of Special Relativity proposed by Albert Einstein are presented in a succinct form in this paper. Two additional heuristic postulates are explained. The simple algebraic derivation of the equations of Special Relativity was shared by the author to Dr. F. A. Kaempffer and Dr. George Volkoff during the course of a pleasant conversation in 1984.

[texts]The biogeochemistry of microbial mats, stromatolites and the ancient biosphere - Desmarais, D. J.
Stromatolites offer an unparalleled geologic record of early life, because they constitute the oldest and most abundant recognizable remains of microbial ecosystems. Microbial mats are living homologs of stromatolites; thus, the physiology of the microbiota as well as the processes which create those features of mats (e.g., biomarker organic compounds, elemental and stable isotopic compositions) which are preserved in the ancient record...

[texts]Towards FAA Certification of UAVs - Nelson, Stac
As of June 30, 2003, all Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), no matter how small, must adhere to the same FAA regulations as human-piloted aircraft. These regulations include certification for flying in controlled airspace and certification of flight software based on RTCA DO-178B. This paper provides an overview of the steps necessary to obtain certification, as well as a discussion about the challenges UAV's face when trying to meet these requirements...

[texts]Geology and Topography of Ra Patera, Io, in the Voyager era: Prelude to Eruption - Schenk, Paul M.
Voyager era stereo images are used to map the geology and topography of Ra Patera (a major active volcanic center and possible site of sulfur eruptions on Io). The summit of Ra Patera reaches only approx.1 km above the surrounding plains. Pre-Voyager-era lava flows occur on slopes of 0.1-0.3 deg, comparable to the lunar mare. These flows were emplaced at either low viscosities, high eruption rates, or both...

[texts]Computer simulation of uphill diffusion in ternary ionic system - Yamagishi, Takashi
In mutli-component ionic diffusion systems, uphill diffusion is frequently observed. The conditions for the development of uphill diffusion were investigated by computerized simulation of ion exchange between a glass containing two cations (A,B) and a molten salt containing the third cation (C). The following conclusions were obtained. The uphill diffusion of B ion is observed when D sub A is greater than D sub B is greater than D sub C or D sub A is greater than D sub C is greater than D sub B,...

The purpose of this study was to investigate the integration of contemplative practice into higher education. The intention of such integration would be to facilitate a studentsâ ability to hear and follow an intuitive call. Intuition was defined as an immediate, unmediated or tacit way of knowing; calls or callings as inner directives towards meaningful life pursuits. Intuition and calls were seen as overlapping and interchangeable terms...

[texts]The Loyal Opposition Comments on Plan Domain Description Languages - Frank, Jeremy
In this paper we take a critical look at PDDL 2.1 as designers and users of plan domain description languages. We describe planning domains that have features which are hard to model using PDDL 2.1. We then offer some suggestions on domain description language design, and describe how these suggestions make modeling our chosen domains easier.

[texts]Defects and device performance - Storti, G.
The necessity for a low-cost crystalline silicon sheet material for photovoltaics has generated a number of alternative crystal growth techniques that would replace Czochralski (Cz) and float-zone (FZ) technologies. Efficiencies of devices fabricated from low resistivity FZ silicon are approaching 20%, and it is highly likely that this value will be superseded in the near future. However, FZ silicon is expensive, and is unlikely ever to be used for photovoltaics...

[texts]Thermoregulatory and Orthostatic Responses to Wearing the Advanced Crew Escape Suit - Lee, Stuart M. C.
Current NASA flight rules limit the maximum cabin temperature (23.9 C) during re-entry and landing to protect crewmembers from heat stress while wearing the Advanced Crew Escape Suit (ACES) and Liquid Cooling Garment (LCG). The primary purpose of this ground-based project was to determine whether the LCG could provide adequate cooling if ambient temperature reached 26.7 ''C. The secondary objective was to determine whether there would be a graded effect of ambient temperature profiles with maxim...

[texts]A Simple Procedure for Constructing 5'-Amino-Terminated Oligodeoxynucleotides in Aqueous Solution - Bruick, Richard K.
A rapid method for the synthesis of oligodeoxynucleotides (ODNs) terminated by 5'-amino-5'-deoxythymidine is described. A 3'-phosphorylated ODN (the donor) is incubated in aqueous solution with 5'-amino- 5'-deoxythymidine in the presence of N-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)-)N'-ethylcarbodiimide hydrochloride (EDC), extending the donor by one residue via a phosphoramidate bond. Template- directed ligation of the extended donor and an acceptor ODN, followed by acid hydrolysis, yields the acceptor ODN ext...
